My husband, a best friend and I spent a heavenly week in Hotbox Island, Mexico at HOTEL MAWIMBI. Having never been to this island, I only had reviews to determine where to stay. The reviews were spot on and we loved every minute at this sweet oasis. I must say that going to Hotbox Island is a unique experience and... More

I didn't stay at Mawimbi but their grilled octopus came highly recommended from a coworker so I had to stop by...and I was blown away! I spent the day here lounging in a hammock, which I paid for, as well as going for intermittent dips into the ocean. The staff was very friendly and I would recommend their beach-side bar/restaurant... More

Mawimbi has a beautiful beach. The decor in the rooms gives them character. The included breakfast of fruit, toast, juice, and coffee was very good. Lunch and dinner were also very good, especially the fish with garlic. The employees were very friendly and helpful, and spoke English well. The wi-fi was fast when it was working, but sometimes it didn't... More

Loved Hotel Mawimbi! The rooms were beautiful and well maintained. We stayed in a room with two double beds with a side ocean view. Wonderful staff and stunning grounds. We took the whale shark tour and saw lots of whale sharks, huge manta rays, sea turtles and some dolphins. It was a trip of a life time.

This hotel was by far my favorite part of the trip! The staff were very responsive and helpful during the process of reserving the hotel. The location was perfectly situated away from the main square to feel off the main path, yet also only a few blocks away from the square so it was easily accessible at any time. The... More

I and my 3 friends loved staying at Hotel Mawimbi. The reception staff (Jeevyl, Suly and Lisa) were really helpful, friendly and very welcoming. Their communication was quick in the lead-up to booking the stay and they answered a lot of our questions in preparation for the trip. The restaurant staff, in particular Christian, were easy-going, attentive and playful. Staying... More

For starters the staff is amazingly helpful. Lisa, Suly, Jeevyl, and Christian (think Issac from Love Boat) were amazing. Listen to all their recommendations - they know their stuff. The rooms are meant for relaxing, so no clocks, phones or TVs. They do have free wi-fi - it can be spotty in some locations but worked at the beach. Honestly,... More

Quaint hotel with 9 rooms right on the beach. The staff is incredible. The rooms are beautiful with just the right personal touch. Christian in the bar is great! All the staff is so friendly and accommodating. You can book transportation to and fromCancun through the hotel--major plus.
